Topic: ALTERNATE ROUTES

Mary Donalson

Comment: What is the projected timeline for the other projects which are included in the multifaceted traffic solution? It seems unlikely that these projects will ever occur, and that the widening project is just the easiest one to push through. Noise Barriers: eliminate proposed sound walls over the City Park Lakes (or provide clear sound […]

Comment: 3) Interstate Project Coordination Several I-10/I-110 projects are in the planning stage and should be coordinated and comprehensively analyzed to ensure the entire interstate system works effectively and efficiently. In addition, each of these interstate projects has a corresponding impact on the city street system and these impacts should be considered in conjunction. These […]

Comment: To whom it may concern. First of all we should be building a loop instead of widening I-10 but seems like the decision has been made, so please please PLEASE can we try to spare as many mature trees as possible? Our gorgeous trees add to our city’s overall appeal and clean our air […]

Comment: I have listened to your video….if you would like for people who live & work here in Baton Rouge to be able to get to work & around the city then you need to have alternative routes not just ONE route that was a poor poor design to begin with…..if you keep funneling traffic […]

Patrick Mascarella

Comment: First comment, I think that doing this project with the widening costing $360,000,000 is a waste of money and a waste of time. First reason, in about two or three years after completion, it will be just as congested. It’ll be just as bad as it is now, different way, different manner, but the […]

Comment: As an architect who has studied urban design, I do not understand why the proponents of this plan think that funneling 4 lanes of traffic into 2 lanes of traffic is better than funneling 3 lanes of traffic into 2 lanes of traffic across the bridge. The bridge is the problem here and until […]

Comment: 20. Will median openings be closed on alternate routes during construction? Response: A full Transportation Management plan will be performed prior to construction of the project to help facilitate traffic and determine any mitigating projects that need to be completed.

Comment: 2) LSU Access & Signage Due to the limitations of traveling through the LSU campus via vehicle, access to the east side of LSU and the surrounding urbanized area is critical to the success of this project. Southbound travelers from I-110 would be limited to two options to access the LSU east campus at […]

Comment: 17. Have any alternate studies been done to incorporate widening say Airline Highway at $100 million and removing some of the lights to make it a faster more direct route from Interstate 110 to Prairieville rather than taking the Interstate Response: DOTD investigated this in the Baton Rouge Urban Mobility Plan (BUMP) study.  Model […]

Comment: Why does DOTD not support a toll loop ? Exit I10 East of Grosse Tete go south until turning east to tie into hwy1 between Addis and Dow . Cross Mississippi River turning slight southeast to tie intoI10 west of Hwy 73 ? Allow oil companies to build service stations in middle of loop […]

Kenri Avery

Comment: Consider bridging over from South Bluebonnet to WBR to give I-10 East and West A break trying to commute back and forth over the MS River. Especially for plant workers. Truckers and pass thru people need some relief. Response: During the Stage 0 Feasibility Study for this project, alternative regional transportation improvements were considered […]

Southside Civic Association and Carol Ann Brown

Comment: 16. How are Dalrymple-I-10 ramps being configured to help alleviate traffic from LSU so not everyone is forced to use S. Acadian or College Dr. Response: An eastbound entrance ramp to I-10 from Dalrymple Drive is being provided by utilizing the westbound entrance ramp and collector road to the dedicated U-Turn under I-10 just […]

Becca Behrnes

Comment: BUT: Widening I-10 will not improve traffic! “Induced Demand” is real! Why can’t we try “REDUCED demand” instead, and spend the money on public transit or widening the bridge, or building a new bridge. You can make the top of the funnel as wide as you want, but if the spout stays the same […]

Comment: Ten years from now, will it help Baton Rouge to have this somewhat wider section of I-10? Will we look back in 2028 and say that we were so glad that all the money and disruption was worth it to solve the problem? I think everyone is frustrated and everyone wants to do something. […]
